Hickenlooper Says Teamwork Needed to Meet Housing Demands

As more people move into Denver and the economy improves, demand for housing is naturally going to rise. Governor Hickenlooper thinks teamwork is the answer.

“Businesses, nonprofits and government will have to work together to meet the need for housing in Colorado, Gov. John Hickenlooper said Thursday in north Durango.

“No one segment is going to be the solution,” he said.

The governor visited Durango to celebrate the groundbreaking of a 36-unit affordable housing project on 32nd Street. The housing project is the second phase of the Lumien Apartment complex.

Construction of the project will start this fall and is expected to be completed in 2020, said Bob Munroe, a partner with Denver-based Solvera, the developer of the project.”
